- Excretory duct of seminal gland
Excretory duct of seminal gland Prostate with seminal vesicles and seminal ducts, viewed from in front and above. Vesiculæ seminales and ampullæ of ductus deferentes, seen from the front. Latin ductus excretorius glandulae vesiculosae Gray's subject #260 1246
Each seminal vesicle consists of a single tube, coiled upon itself, and giving off several irregular cecal diverticula; the separate coils, as well as the diverticula, are connected together by fibrous tissue. When uncoiled, the tube is about the diameter of a quill, and varies in length from 10 to 15 cm.; it ends posteriorly in a cul-de-sac; its anterior extremity becomes constricted into a narrow straight duct called the excretory duct of seminal gland (or duct of the seminal vesicle), which joins with the corresponding ductus deferens to form the ejaculatory duct.
